Our capsule collection of inspired furniture for enhancing our daily lives
A timeless and elegant form, carrying the same family style as the Journal desk, the three legs represent the many paths possible which all ultimately end their journey at the same place at the top– the source of the light- illumination or enlightenment. An elegant form to illuminate ones evening activities.
In the grand old days when all hotels had ‘Porters’ the gentlemen were given chairs that provided cover over their heads to protect them from the wind and rain as they sat by the open doors. Our inspiration comes from, a cocooned experience, wrapped in opulent fabric. This also makes the chair great for conversation because it blocks out noise from around you.
Journal desk had two origins, the first to create a smaller desk that could sit well in an alcove hence taking minimal space and the other was to create a desk that was more inline with the graceful feminine to counter the predominantly masculine styling available. I envisage the user writing their daily journal on it about their path in life as it unfolds in front of them.
The legs are in high gloss white lacquer, the top and bridge feature are wrapped in high grade aniline leather, the drawer handle is solid silver
It is said that Buddha sat underneath the Bhodi tree when he received enlightenment, hence the 7 bowls representing the 7 levels of enlightenment, the scorched Oak is to resemble old Indian wooden bowls, the shape actually came from a Tibetan singing bowl bought for me by my wife, meanwhile the colours gold and purple invoke images of India to mind.
The top is in Nero Marquina Marble, the base is solid Oak with a burnt finish, with lacquer and gold leaf detailing
